Fatal collision near Rockin’ the Fields

Three people were hit by a vehicle near the Rockin’ the Fields of Minnedosa site shortly before 3 a.m. Monday morning, leaving two injured and one dead.

The vehicle was driving south along Provincial Road 262, commonly known as the beach road, when it first struck two people who were walking on the shoulder of the highway.

The vehicle kept driving down the highway and hit a 44-year-old Winnipeg man.

Local RCMP, fire and EMS responded to the report. 

The 44-year-old was treated for his injuries on scene and released. 

The pair walking were a 23-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man, both from Minnedosa. They were taken by ambulance to the Minnedosa Health Centre, where the man passed away.

A family member has confirmed the dead man was Shawn Cooper. 

The woman was treated for injuries and later released. 

Minnedosa RCMP have a 37-year-old suspect in custody and alcohol is considered to be a factor. 

Local RCMP continue to investigate with assistance from the RCMP collision analyst.
